Hi all! So I’ve used the “old” and the “new” version of the Eurotronic Spirit. The old one costed me 35 Euro on Amazon and the new one 53 Euro. The only difference I noticed was that the backlight on the new one is a bit better, but this only results in a better experience if you plan to look at the screen a lot from odd angles (above the screen but angled a bit anterior).
In terms of stability, response and user-friendliness, both were very good! Like a lot of the other contributors on this topic, it was a very good experience using the Eurotronic Spirit. I’m very much pleasantly surprised, especially regarding its price.
I’ve found only one reference for the differences between the new and the old one. This is written by a long term user who’s used both for quite some time. He didn’t experience any significant differences.
From a Homey perspective there is no difference, the Homey app connects to the Tado hosted web service and not to your bridge. As the Tado geofencing is no longer part of the Homey app the additional paid subscription services with V3(+) are a personal choice. The Homey will simply not receive Tado data about the non subscribed services.
Running my Tado v2 bridge and the HomeyTado app without any problem for years.
I meant Homey reads the data (via an API) from the Tado server; Homey does not connect to your own inhouse bridge directly.
If you change a radiator valve manually, the bridge is sending this information to the Tado server, which communicates with Homey (and with your Tado mobile phone app).
Thank you for the great testing! Just my remark to smart thermo valves: after 1 year with cheap Chinese valves I switched to zigbee Danfoss Ally. They are quality made, precis, silent and have ring for easy temperature change. Unfortunately not supported by Homey.
Sorry to dig up this topic, but today i have a lot of trouble to find a Thermo Valve, compatible with homey, available on the web…
I have already 4 Eurotronics Spirit, but impossible to find the same reference on the web, always sold out… Danfoss LC13 is stopped and in the Danfoss App in Homey you can’t pair Danfoss ALLY.
Fibaro is expensive …Shelly too …
Do you know another brand compatible with homey which made thermo valve ?
Not available to buy
Smartwaves, Danfoss L13, plugwise
zwave only and EUR 50:
This is what I meant. The ones available are so expensive that I doubt it will ever pay off (Investment vs. energy savings). But probably it is just the current market driving prices up and next year in summer the prices are back to an ok level.
Cheaper alternatives as the new aquara thermostat are not supported by homey.
Anybody installed the Tuya Zigbee Thermostat (Moes Tuya ZigBee3.0) with the Tuya Cloud App in homey and what is your experience?
Thanks Peter. I was wondering which device it is. Did not think it is the valve controler (strange picture). And I thought I need to use the Tuya cloud app. Do not yet understand why there are two Tuya apps and with which Homey is the gateway or if you need the Tuya gateway. In the Tuya cloud app there is no thermostat.
This is why I am in this thread and asking if anybody has ever connected the Moe Zigbee Thermostat with the homey.
Just checked. The valve controller in the Tuya zigbee app is not the thermostat. At least the control options are only on and off. This cannot be a thermostat. It looks like a the Moe BRT 100 is not supported at all and also not planned to be added, as far as I understand the timeline of added devices in the forum. Difficult.
